Sammy Okposo Passed Away at the Age of 51
Okposo’s manager said the singer died at his home in Lagos around 4 a.m. on Friday. His family also said that he is singing with angels and Jesus. Okposo had been very close to death two years ago. In 2020, he was driving on a bridge when his car’s propeller shaft came off suddenly. The singer was not hurt in the crash and posted a picture of the car on social media.
He wrote at the time, “Think about what would have happened if God hadn’t told me to slow down. Think about what would have happened if I was still going 120kph when my car’s propeller shaft broke.”
“Oh Jesus, oh Jesus, oh Jesus, thank you, my saviour, my deliverer, my protector, my shield. I’m alive because of you, Jesus. I’m fine. Not a scratch, nothing missing, nothing broken. Yet again, the devil and his followers have failed, and they will continue to fail,” he said.
